Dear (your MP) and Minister Oda, I’m writing to thank you for Canada’s recent decision to sign on to the International Aid Transparency Initiative, a major step forward in strengthening aid effectiveness. I’d like to thank you for the role you played in making this happen. The Government of Canada and the Canadian International Development Agency deserve praise for taking this bold step towards more transparent, effective foreign aid. Increasing aid transparency is key to fostering the accountability needed for ensuring development effectiveness and results. By signing on to this global standard, Canada will reduce bureaucratic overhead and ensure that every dollar we give goes further. This means we'll spend more of our money on the real work of aid: helping people work their way out of poverty. Thanks again for your leadership. I look forward to continuing to work with you to strengthen Canada’s foreign aid. Yours sincerely, (please insert your name here)
Keep me updated about IATI and on how I can help make aid more effective
Please help us spread the word by inviting your friends and family to lend their voice to those asking for IATI. The more people asking for this common sense solution where everybody wins, the more likely it is that the governement will listen.
